It sounds like a toy piano its not very entertaining in any way. It's pretty bad when you can hear the real thing and enjoy it for what it is a great song

Margaret Leng's next investment should be a toy metronome.

Subject: Haunting
The arrangement is odd and confusing in some places, but it seems deliberately done, even though it doesn't sound like it. This rendition is absolutely haunting, capturing much of the spirit of the original. Definitely worth a listen even if it isn't your thing.

It just goes to show you, it's not a TOY piano if you know how to play it.
